New Coloring Page – Peregrine Falcon

April 20th, 2011

This is P in the April A to Z Blogging Challenge

I’m running a little late today – but we got here.  Fall and spring bring migrating Peregrine Falcons to the ranch out in the desert.  The ranch is home to a huge population of Eurasian Ring Necked Doves.  The falcons stop by and thin them out a bit twice a year!  Because of this I’ve had a couple of thrilling close encounters with these little speed demons – the last only a couple of weeks ago.  Their striped undersides are striking – and the last sight many a dove ever has. As always click on the thumbnail or the link below for the full size coloring page.

If there is one flower that you cannot miss in the summertime, it is the huge blooms of the sunflower – that perfectly mirror their namesake the sun back to the sky.

I hope you enjoy this Sunflower Head Coloring Page.

Bush Dog Coloring Page

Once again, I am proud to hear from Ian, the gentleman who teaches at an orphanage in Mexico, with a request. This time he asked for a Bush Dog Coloring Page. These amazing little creatures were once thought to be extinct, but still live in Central and South America. Tough looking little guys, aren’t they? I don’t know if I really caught it in the line art, but in the photos you can see these powerful jaw muscles that make them look like they could snap your hand off like it was nothing. Ow!

New Coloring Page – Prickly Pear Cactus on Rocks

February 4th, 2010

This coloring page of a huge stand of prickly pear cactus growing up a mountainside here in New Mexico was created in response to the request for trees and shrubs.  We don’t really have a lot of trees – but these huge prickly pears always amaze me.  Hubby took the reference photo for me.  It is a very complex line drawing so probably best for older children and adults to color. Here is a link to the prickly pear cactus in rocks coloring page with a thumbnail and a thumbnail of the reference photo linked to the large one on Flickr if you want to use it.

New Coloring Page – Nuturing Tree

February 2nd, 2010

Here is another tree coloring page created from one of my original watercolor paintings. I loved the tiny little tree coming up right at the feet of the big mighty oak, as if the big tree were protecting the little fellow. Here is the link to the tree coloring page, along with a thumbnail and a thumbnail with link to the painting posted on Flickr in case you’d like a reference.

It occurred to me that you might be wondering why the last two paintings have “fre-ecards.com” on the bottom. I used to own and run that website featuing my own art on eCards. Sadly when my old webhost went out of business I was not able to get the eCards set back up. I still own the domain and someday when I’ve got a spare $200 or so to pay for the software and installation, I’ll get it going again.

New Coloring Page – Fallen Tree Over a Stream

February 2nd, 2010

You guys are always challenging me with your requests! In the last two days I’ve gotten three exciting requests that have made my heart warm, made me think, and challenged my drawing ability. Keep ‘em coming! You can always email requests to me – be sure and put Color Your Own in the subject line so they don’t get shuffled off to junk mail tho.

Linda wrote to tell me her husband loves to color trees and shrubs. I love trees, too – especially ones with very interesting shapes. I told my husband about the request and he responded by taking some photos (which is what he loves to do) and I’ll be sharing those later. The first thing I did was go look back in the archives for some old watercolor paintings I had done of trees. This is the first coloring page – a tree fallen over a stream. One of those hardy willows, when I drew it it still had green leaves on it! Here’s a link to the fallen tree coloring page as well as a thumbnail linked to the painting on Flickr so you have a reference if you’d like one.
